"In Culver city California and I'm Steve Inskeep in Washington DC good morning Israel proudly calls itself the only democracy in the Middle East at the moment it's a democracy that cannot make up its mind today the country is holding its third national election in less than a year after both the previous two ended in stalemate NPR's Daniel Estrin is with us from the city of Rehovot in central Israel Daniel how did we get here we got here because Israel's political system Steve is facing a deep crisis first of all the electoral system here has a major weakness because neither candidate neither Netanyahu nor his rival Benny guns have been able to build a majority coalition in parliament and the system here does not force a decisive winner so they keep going round after round and plus you've got Benjamin Netanyahu's corruption charges and a lot of his political allies who used to be by his side no longer willing to stand by his side and join his government and instead of resigning he keeps trying and trying again one of orders telling you what I've heard from some Israelis who say you know what's the point of voting when you keep doing this over and over but actually Steve of people are energized out of the polls voter turnout in the last round increased from the first round and now we're in the third round the stakes are high and voters want to be a part of it even though they realize that something is pretty rotten about holding third elections take a listen to voters V.

Joe Biden says he never "acted inappropriately" with Lucy Flores
"We're going to start our program today with a conversation about an alleged encounter between former vice president Joe Biden and former Nevada democratic assemblywoman Lucy Flores in an article for New York magazine Flores details and alleged encounter in two thousand fourteen with then vice president Biden, she calls the encounter awkward and says he grabbed her shoulders from behind sniffed her hair and kissed the back of her head before a campaign event. At the time says she felt embarrassed and powerless former vice president Biden responded with a statement that said quote in my many years on the campaign trail and in public life. I have offered countless handshakes hugs expressions of affection support and comfort and not once never did. I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested that I did. So I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention Lucy. Flora's is here to speak with us about this alleged encounter from our studios in Culver City, California. We should also say we have invited the former vice president to respond to the allegations in an interview, and we have not yet received a response Lucy. Flores thank you for being with us. Thank you. My pleasure. Miss flora, can you describe the encounter in your own words? Share will. I mean, it's just as I described it happened. Very suddenly I was on expecting it. It was a campaign rally setting. So there was a lot of chaos a lot of people a lot of energy. We were all kind of in public vice president Biden, and I were never alone together. So as we were waiting to be called up to the stage. The rally had already started people were already speaking. We were waiting in line. Even Gloria was in front of me, Joe Biden was behind me. And you know, I just all of a sudden feel his hands. And I feel him get up really close to me. And i'm. Just you know, at that point processing, and I'm thinking, okay. This is really weird. But then he leans in. And then he like inhales, and and then he proceeds to plant this long kiss on the top of my head and the entire time. And just kinda like what is happening as we mentioned, former vice president Biden has released a statement and says if he did behave this way, he doesn't believe he acted inappropriately. What is your response to his statement? I need the vice president and all men and all people who are in positions of power to understand that in that setting in that situation that kind of behavior is absolutely inappropriate. A big part of the reason why I'm also speaking out now is because he has a history of this. This is not in unknown issue. There have been stories. There are pictures. There are videos, I think that there is a very severe disconnect and lack of empathy for what the women on the receiving end are feeling I understand that he's trying to clear his his intention, but it's not about your intention. Whether it was an innocent gesture whether it was a sexual gesture none of that matters. It is about the person on the receiving end of that inappropriate behavior by someone who is very very clearly. More powerful than you that power dynamic is important to recognize the organizer of the event, you describe is Henry Munoz the co founder of the Latino victory project and he released a statement Saturday night, and he says quote at no time were these two leaders alone together. And I and the organization I co-founded and those in attendance, do not believe that circumstances. Support allegations that such an event took place. What is your response to Mr. Munoz, Mr. boondocks saints took oh and read my ass because clearly he didn't read it or if he read it he didn't comprehend it he specifically inquired about whether or not we were ever alone. And I never ever stated that we were alone. In fact, I've been very clear that this was always out in public. You said in your article that you're not suggesting that Joe Biden broke any laws. Why did you wish to come forward? Over the years. I have seen that this type of inappropriate behavior by Joe bye. Heiden? But also by others has not been taken seriously. And in many ways, if the media did talk about it. They kind of talked about it jokingly and kind of giving him a pass like this is just Biden being Biden boys will be boys while I'm saying, no, so former vice president Joe Biden is mulling a presidential run. Do you think he should run for president? I don't believe he should run for president that being said, I'm not supporting any other candidate. I'm not saying these things because I'm trying to lift up anybody else. We have many many qualified candidates including women, and I want to continue hearing from all of them. And as far as it relates to president Biden. No, I don't believe that he should run. There's a reaction to Joe Biden generally that his behavior is possibly a generational misunderstanding. That went vitamin considers quote expressions of affection others, consider completely inappropriate. And and what is your view about this there? Very well could be that aspect in the same way that you have folks who are serving who up until recently, you had people who were against the Civil Rights Act and were pro segregationists. And those people were still serving in our government. I think that culture is changing and it's changing for the better. And that's what we

Their jobs created will include engineering, research development, customer support and more.

Apple to Build New Sites, Including Texas Campus
"Dollars to build a new corporate campus in Austin, Texas, promising to create as many as fifteen thousand jobs, the iphone maker also plans to establish new offices in San Diego Seattle and Culver City, California, where it said it would add more than one thousand jobs in each place trip. Michael covers apple for the Wall Street Journal in joins us from San Francisco trip. Apple is also announced plans to add hundreds of jobs in cities where it already has offices know New York, Boston Portland, Oregon was the news about a new campus in Austin a surprise. And what about the other locations? The news was a surprise earlier this year apple announced that it would name new campus a new facility by the year's end and in doing so it said that it would it would name the facility in a state other than California and Texas where it has existing operations. So today's announcement was surprise in the sense that this new campus that wasn't else is in Texas where. For Apple's already operating. And also as I mentioned these other locations that was a surprise to me. There was no beauty contest about any of these locations. You know, San Diego Seattle Culver city. It's a surprise unless you're a close follower of apple in the case of Culliver city apples been adding jobs to support its Hollywood operations there and its expansion into video streaming programming in the case of Seattle. Apple's had pretty sizable machine learning effort base there. And so adding jobs there make sense at certainly already been in that area and in the case of San Diego. There have been reports of late of apple adding jobs there in order to work on modem chips, and and semiconductor effort this comes as other tech giants like Amazon and Google are also expanding into new cities, and creating new jobs does any of this have to do with pressure from President
From HQ2 to Trump, Amazon to face a lot of challenges in 2019 (The 3:59, Ep. 504)
"To three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX urban Joni Sussman twenty nine team. It's shaping up to be a challenging one for Amazon with critic seemingly coming out of the woodwork in New York City against its h q to project their plus the company faces potential troubles from President Trump. And it's controversial facial recognition software. So Joan what I wanted to ask you about this is do you think that Amazon's really strong reputation with his customers will continue to help insulating. It from some of these issues seems like people consumers have sort of bifurcated their understanding of Amazon like I feel like even like we were chatting before this. I'm New Yorker year. You're earning Johnny live in this area. We're talking about reasons that it's. The reasons that some people are annoyed with the issue decision to move here. But even though I am one of the people it's kind of annoyed by still use Amazon constantly, so as like a consumer as a service, I think that people will continue to judge Amazon the service different than Amazon as a company. Yeah. I totally agree. I was at a council hearing that ran for like three hours yesterday where a bunch of council members where beating up Amazon about the age to process how they're being cut out of it. And that this is going to be a state process that in like the fact that Amazon was going to get three billion dollars in incentives for building. What are the council members? I thought really crystallized a lot of what we're talking about. Really? Well, and he specifically said we we love you. And we hate you. And it wasn't or whatever it was like, we're we kinda feel the same two things about Amazon at the exact time. So I was kind of in the story that I wrote today though, I was kinda. Curious to see people really like a lot of Google services. People use a lot of Google services. People really like Facebook to there's a reason why social media company out there. So I was curious to see if with all this tech backlash that was going on directed at both of those companies whether Amazon would start to face some of those similar issues there there are like a lot of those issues that have been simmering with the company, but at the same time, I really don't think that they've been hit the same way as Facebook and Google, I if you agree with that. Yeah. But I think that's because most of the tech backlash or we're talking about it's mostly been centered on Facebook, really like is Facebook has been the locus of all that animosity. And I think Google and YouTube are pulled into that vortex because they have services that are very similar like they have these user generated. Eh social based things where this abuse all kind of able to. It's like a little crackling fire all able to the fuel each other Amazon isn't really operating in those spaces. And so it's been insulated in a way. Yes. But I think that that doesn't mean that it the next tech backlash twenty nineteen might be like rate in the sweet spot for Amazon. Might be related to facial recognition software or might be related to President Trump bringing up more issue's about postal service. There's a lot. Either way next up apple is building its own hue to project in Austin, Texas. The company today unveiled plans for a one billion dollar campus there along with new offices in Seattle Cindy ago, Culver City, California as well as expanding operations in Pittsburgh, New York and Boulder, Colorado. So my question for you is should we go work for Amazon or apple my gosh, come on? Wow. That's why would we do that? But yeah, I mean, even though it's fun to kind of compare it to an H Q two idea. But it's really not. I mean, this is kind of different expansion of their workforce than the whole like dog and pony show around HQ to addition to this. You know, it's a lot the number of people that are going to be bringing jobs. They're going to be bringing to Austin is a lot smaller than either of the. Yeah. It's not nearly as big as sprinkling it around different other places that touch on initiatives that apple is increasing so related to that. Do you think apple is likely to face like similar criticisms aim is on with HQ to now? So I know and partly because of everything you said treating completely differently either way if you want to read more about these stories, check them out on CNN, Ben FOX or event Joni salesman. Thanks for listening.

We begin this morning with thought leader Thursday here on the opening bell. Chuck Garcia is the executive vice president and director of commercial deposits and treasury management at associated Bank, and Chuck is back with us this morning in the thought leader chair Chuck good morning. Welcome back to the opening bell. Good morning. Nice to be here. A happy holidays to you as well. Here. We are again in the holiday season lots going on. We're gonna talk a little bit about what's happened in your world this year and other things, but let's get to some news with the fed getting ready to have its December meeting looks like another interest rate going up. How's this going to impact financial services sector? Well, it does look like it. I think there's still a tad of uncertainty. But I think what went from being one hundred percent certain is is still very high. So I think this next one is likely clearly it will have an effect really across the board commercial customers will see their rates rise from a from paying on the interest of loans similarly, consumers housing, it'd be interesting to see what happens with the mortgage industry. I think those are already somewhat built in. But clearly it's going to have a have an impact albeit relatively still historically very, very low. I think there's the mental aspect that. People say oh rates are rising. And obviously rates we pay to clients will will increase as well. Are you? What are your thoughts about whether the fed is going to continue this in twenty nineteen nine? There's been a lot of talk about this in the last couple weeks that may be December is going to be the last one for a while. I see too in the coming year. Okay. I think the uncertainty here in the US alone with the tariffs and the trade wars, you know, looming cetera. But also, there's a lot of uncertainty abroad, you have France. Now, obviously, the Brexit situation. There's a lot of uncertainty abroad, and we're all intertwined any longer. And and so I think that's going to have an impact on their desire to to be probably as aggressive as they might have been they being the fed as aggressive as they might have been previously. Do you think it's actually had an impact on businesses, especially local businesses that are they is this something that's causing them to stop and pause their plans. I think it has you know, depending on the industry you're in to raw-materials are part of your production cycle, and your and your supply chain. There's absolute evidence. Having an impact is slowing some things down. I think the farm industry to you know, living where we do. That's continuing to have a drag on that as well. How does the interest rate going up or going down impact the day to day management of financials? Well, you have to really we have to do is really stay abreast of what are what our competition is doing. So for my pain perspective what we pay and interest rates to clients. You know, be they consumers or or corporates. It's certainly today has far more interest at the individual and company level than than it would have even a year ago. It was just immaterial at that point in time. Now, you know dollars are significant enough where people are paying attention and willing to to change in today's environment. If they don't feel like they're getting a proper rate or attention from their Bank. I heard some experts talking about the interest rate hikes have come so quick and fast that they haven't had. There hasn't been enough time for them to take hold and and people have become comfortable with them. Usually there is a bigger window between interest rates is there some truth to that about it still working its way through the system each one of these hikes. Well, I see both sides. I mean, the savvy investor those with large dollars they move very quickly today. If a rate increase does in fact occur they have they effectively expected to be an instantaneous change by their Bank. You know, the the normal John Q public guy like me doesn't pay. As much attention to it. But if all of a sudden, you look up and see oh my gosh. You know, I'm still backing the point one percent. That's not fair in today's environment. You know, they may they may choose to act on that. But I think I think the the savvy investor the corporate investor in the larger dollar people are absolutely much much quicker to react today. I'm interested in your opinion about the economy as it stands right now. Are there earning warning signs out there that you are hearing about or seeing or feeling? Yeah housing. I mean housing is shown some some slowdown, obviously that's a huge component of of our industry in our economy in so housing and the ripple effect that that in fact has is slowing down, you know, they're building as many apartment buildings people aren't buying single housing contrary to what I'm saying. You're the millennials are now moving to the burbs and buying houses. So I think you have kind of a reverse effect of people that are retiring moving into the rural areas, but it isn't fast enough to keep up in so housing. I think is one of the indicators I see that that could have a drag on the economy and then again as rates rise. It makes the affordability of a house that perhaps you could have afforded two years ago. Much less today. Chuck hang on with us. We're on with Chuck or see this morning executive vice president and director of commercial deposits and treasury management at associated Bank. It's our thought leader conversation. We're going.

Scientists Find a Strange New Cell in Human Brains: The 'Rosehip Neuron'
"Scientists have taken one more small step toward understanding what makes. The human brain unique as NPR's John Hamilton reports they've identified a type of brain cell that exists in people but not in rodents the cells are called rose hip. Neurons and, they were first. Described by scientists. In Hungary named Gabor Thomas Ed. Lean of the institute, for brain science, in Seattle says Thomas was recording electrical signals from cells taken from two human brains in the course of doing these recordings he started. To notice a very distinctive type of cell that's to him, have the shape of, a rose after the pedals have fallen off so he called them they rose upsell meanwhile lean. And other scientists at the Allen institute had also run across these unusual neurons while doing genetic analysis, of the brain cells so the researchers combined with they had learned and lean says their conclusion was remarkable, this particular type of so head properties that had never actually been described in another species today the findings suggest that the human brain is. More than just a big mouse brain at some point it acquired at least one kind of cell mouse doesn't have scientists aren't, sure exactly what these cells do though they seem to be, involved in controlling the. Flow of information in the brain and, lean says their existence has big implications for researchers it throws. Some Doubt on the ability to use the mouse then, to study a certain elements of human function and disease rose hip cells are a type of inhibitory neuron. They act like the brakes in a car telling other brain cells when to slow down and lean says it's possible they play a role. In mental illness these, types of cells, are extremely important and dysfunction of them can actually directly be linked to different types of neuropsychiatric disease like schizophrenia rose hip cells are. Involved in brain disorders it could help explain why so many, brain drugs that work, in mice don't work in people Josh Gordon directs the National Institute of mental health which helped. Fund the research it may be that in order to fully understand psychiatric disorders we need to get, access to these special types of neurons that exist only in humans Gordon says this study is part of, a larger effort by the national institutes of health to identify every type of cell found in the brains of mice monkeys and people we. Don't know how How the brain works if. We don't know all of its parts so in order to describe how the brain produces behavior. We want to know what are the different parts in the brain and then. How they work together new genetic techniques are rapidly improving scientists, ability to detect new types of brain cells and Gordon expects that researchers will find more. Cells that, exist in people but not animals I think it's very very likely that this is the tip of the iceberg the new research appears in the, journal nature
U.S. deports accused former Nazi guard to Germany
"A former Nazi concentration camp guard was recently, discovered living in New York City he. Is now being deported from the United States that's according to US immigration and customs enforcement is I says the ninety five. Year old's name, is yucky Polly and he's been being sent to Germany the. White House commended the move this Morning NPR's Sarah McCarron has been following this and joins us down, the studio Sarah what, can you, tell us about this man Yawkey Polly well, he. Was born in what was then. Poland and what's now Ukraine and this is important, because, this was a long time ago and he's a man not quite without a country but that. No country has wanted to claim because of his involvement in, Nazi concentration camps in World War Two he worked in nineteen forty-three at. A German concentration camp in what was German occupied Poland. Later that same year thousands of. Jewish people were shot to death in. A mass execution at that camp, and, this man is not accused of participating directly in that event but he is accused of persecuting people at that camp. Preventing them from escaping and in so doing being responsible in part for those deaths how did he wind up, in New York City well he's been here for, a very long time he'd been living, in queens came to the US. After The war in nineteen forty-nine illegally the US government says they said he he lied in order to come. Here told immigration officials that he had worked in a factory and, on, a farm during the war became a naturalized? Citizen in? Nineteen, fifty seven and then as a result of. Investigations into Nazi war? Crimes was denaturalized in two thousand three ordered deported the next year and that appeal was denied in two thousand, five but he remained in the country right so why he was ordered to be deported. After the US government, found out who he actually was and then and then he stayed well it just comes down to the fact, that that these other countries didn't want to take him ambassador Richard Grenell the embassador. Germany says this came to the president's attention somehow President Trump made, it a priority made it very clear he wanted him, out and also there's been pressure from people in New York members of the New. York congressional delegation had called for his removal activists? In, New York had been calling for this for. Many years ambassador Grenell says, he brought this up repeatedly With the new German government with his. Counterparts there and decided to make a moral case they saw this as a moral obligation that they had not so much, a legal obligation this individual was not is not, a German citizen so the moral, obligation? Because this individual served it in the name of the former German government and so he is back in Germany they say he was taken. Out from his home in queens on a stretcher he's a very old man not clear exactly what, happens to. Him legally at this, point go through some kind of trials you could not entirely clear he, has a very old. Man but officials say.
